Washington, D.C. — Senate Finance Committee Chair Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today issued the following statement:
“Today’s announcement on electric vehicles represents major progress on some of the key energy and climate goals of the Inflation Reduction Act. Americans want lower carbon emissions, more choices for affordable electric vehicles, and more auto manufacturing and good-paying jobs here in this country. Those priorities are not mutually exclusive. Since the IRA became law, there’s been a tidal wave of new announcements of private investments in auto manufacturing and the auto supply chain here in the United States, and I’m going to look for every opportunity to build on that progress. I also expect the administration to keep in close contact with Congress as it continues to implement the law.”
